Police are still searching for Parker Rion, 14, a Bate Middle School eighth-grader who’s been missing for a week. According to Danville Assistant Police Chief Glenn Doan, Rion is thought to now be in the Shelbyville or Louisville area.

The Danville Police Department received enough information to consider Parker a runaway and not just missing, Chief Tony Gray said last week. He was last seen around 8 p.m. on Feb. 26 at his grandparent’s house in Danville. He’s 5-foot-8, weighs 120 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes.

Gray said Danville police are working with authorities in all the areas where they believe Parker could be to help “locate the child and place him back in proper custody.”
